Explore Galaxies Oct. 26
Come to Joseph M. Bryan Jr. Auditorium in Frank Family Science Center at 8 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 26, and take a flight across billions of light years, through clouds of hundreds of thousands of galaxies.
Associate Professor Don Smith will offer a multimedia presentation on galaxies, which typically contain a hundred billion stars and come in dwarf, spiral, elliptical and irregular varieties. In several billion years our galaxy will collide with its closest neighbor galaxy.
Tour the J. Donald Cline Observatory afterward and, weather permitting, view galaxies and planets through the observatory’s optical telescopes. The event is free and open to the public.
